,900. >>> welcome back. as obama care continues to unravel we are hearing more stories about average americans who are feeling the pain from this disastrous law. despite the president's promise that americans could keep their plan, their doctor my next guest was recently told her health plan would be cancelled. eileen has a 17-year-old daughter named johanna. she was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease at 3 months old. she's under gone 86 surgeries since the diagnosis. eileen says her isurance company notified her that the plan would be terminated and the only feasible option would be to join the exchange, increasing her premium by $1,000 57bd and cutting her daughter's access to her hospital and doctors. good to see you. your daughter is a sweetheart. she just got out of icu. >> she did. just today actually. >> 86. she's 17 years old. 86 surgeries. >> mm-hmm. >> that's tough. >> it is. >> it's hard. >> yeah, it is. >> i also spoke with -- you have had one doctor throughout this period. >> yes. the pediatrician. she's amazing dr. nataloni. >> you learned when your insurance would be termina
state will be among five million americans who won't be covered by obama care because their states are refusing medicaid expansion. >> our state is doing something called insure oklahoma. we've done it several years. it was a ramp-up process where it was a state solution to deal with uninsured in our state. that now is also considered illegal and we're going through the process to try to figure out people that were covered under insure oklahoma, that are exactly in that pool you're describing, now are being pushed out and our state has to then reconfigure. the biggest issue is why. you talk to the people that were covered under insure oklahoma, they liked their coverage. they have come to me and complained and said why can't i deep this. and so there are big issues. so it's simple to look at the data from a distance but when you know those families face to face, you see the real effect on them. a car dealership in central oklahoma city just talked to two days ago and his statement is he's now gone back on and discovered he's losing his insurance because he's one of those small asso

continues its renewed public relations campaign to promote obama care, the number of americans signing up is on the rise. according to the kaiser family foundation, more than 243,000 have signed up for private coverage through the exchanges and more than 567,000 have been determined eligible for medicaid since the october 1st rollout. joining me now, congressman rosa delauro of connecticut and one of the white house democrats on the white house strike team promoting the health care law this month. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. delighted to be here. >> today's push is all about the success of medicaid expansion. 26 states and d.c. have taken advantage while 24 states all run by republicans or republican legislatures have declined the expansion. i also want to point out these stats the white house just released. if all 50 states were on board, 5.4 million uninsured americans could gain coverage. eight in ten of those would pay less than $100 a month, all of which would save states $10 billion over the next decade. so my question, congresswoman, is what are we doing to get that messag
are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too much for those who are in need. the president is talking about republicans like rand paul, from ken
wage goes up as president obama says. unemployment among hispanics, among african-americans, among those struggling to get their first job to climb the economic ladder will go up. >> these guys are just making this stuff up. they're making it up. there is no study anywhere that says for sure unemployment of young people is going to go up if we raise the minimum wage. it's never happened before. you know, it's guys like paul ryan and ted cruz. groups like a.l.e.c. and the republican economic policies in general that keep wages stagnant at $7.25 an hour at the federal level. the republican mission, it is very clear. they want to keep labor cheap and profits for the top 1% as high as they can get them. and it's interesting. how paul ryan talks about the takers. let's talk about the takers for a moment. are the oil companies, are they takers? walmart? are they takers? on a local level, when they get tax abatements? how about boeing? are they a taker? they've got $9 billion worth ever incentives on the table just to stay in washington so workers can have a job. but, of course, the union

bugs, crashes and glitches, the obama administration says the site where americans are supposed to shop for insurance can now handle up to 50,000 visitors at a time but critics, including some insurers say the fixes don't mean the site gets a clean bill of health. our chief white house correspondent ed henry joins us with more. what problems still remain for the president and his signature law? >> bottom line is the insurance companies are saying it's nice that the website deadline was -- appears to have been met in terms of getting things working more smoothly but the insurance companies believe the real deadline is about 30 days from now beginning of january when, you know, folks who enroll are actually going to be needing to move forward with the insurance and there are still problems with the so-called back end of the website in terms of getting people through the checkout line and connecting them to insurance companies. so there's still a lot more work to do even though advisers to the white house, outside advise ires are insisting they basically turned the corner. >> i think actua
